Today is my 1 month wedding anniversary. Big day =D.
As promised, my wedding vows. The bolded parts were not read, and were instead included to help give each section its own individual significance, as it was orated.
(I was concerned they would mentally “run together”, which I thought would then bleed over to my verbal communication of them).
From the best within me, I declare absolute devotion to the following vows :
I vow to take joy in witnessing your existence every day, as much as I do my own.
I vow to earn your love, respect, and admiration each day – and to never deal in the unearned and undeserved.
I vow to live congruent to my deepest convictions; to always maintain my integrity, to never compromise on or sacrifice a higher value for a lower.
I vow to protect you, my self, and any family we may come to create together.
I vow to love, respect, and admire you until death, or life, do us…
